Network Relations Internship
The Network Relations department at the Institute for Humane Studies (IHS) at George Mason University is looking for an intern with current availability.
We’re looking for someone who is internally motivated, knowledgeable, and willing to work in a team environment. Excruciating attention to detail and a love of measurement is key. Ability to acknowledge and learn from failed experiments is necessary.
Key responsibilities could include:
- Collecting and evaluating scholarship, teaching, and related information about known freedom-friendly scholars—through internet research, email correspondence, and telephone contact
- Conducting research to strategically identify new liberty-friendly scholars to add to the network
- Assisting the Find Scholars team in determining which scholars would be appropriate to recommend for research, teaching, or media opportunities
- Managing and tracking data about scholars and other individuals in IHS’s customer database
- Documenting best practices and helping to maintain data integrity
- Executing measurement and reporting necessary to track performance
- Providing administrative support to members of the Find Scholars team
- Assisting with other IHS programs as needed
- Provide general support for the Network Relations team – data and content management, event prep and follow-up, outreach support.
- Provide support to the marketing efforts of online job and opportunities platform (www.libertyguide.com).”
Qualified candidates should possess:
- Entrepreneurial creativity
- A high sense of urgency
- Unwavering attention to detail
- Excellent written communication skills
- Extreme comfort with and/or willingness to quickly learn new data skills
- A strong understanding of and appreciation for classical liberal principles—individual rights, free markets, limited government, voluntarism, and peace
The internship will be a combination of data entry/measurement and more substantive networking-related tasks. We emphasize ownership of projects and personal time management -- self-starters do well.
